Abstract: The Stendahl Art Galleries records document the business dealings of the Los Angeles gallery from 1913 to 2017. The gallery initially exhibited works by modern and local artists, but transitioned in 1935 to dealing mostly in pre-Hispanic art. Stendahl Art Galleries sold pre-Hispanic works to a variety of collectors, dealers, and institutions, and is considered a significant gallery in the history of that market. The records comprise subject files; photographic files; exhibition files; documents related to publications; financial records; administrative files; correspondence; and Stendahl family papers including research files for the book Exhibitionist: Earl Stendahl Art Dealer as Impresario.
